"VARROA WARNING - Even if you have already treated your bees for varroa it may be worth checking them again - see note on the right "


EBKA has a variety of beekeeping equipment that Members may hire - see notice on the 'Membership' page


YOUR SUGGESTIONS and CONTRIBUTIONS REQUIRED! We all recognise that Exeter BKA needs to reflect the interests of all its Members - from the experienced to the new beekeeper. We would dearly like to hear the suggestions and contributions from as many of you as possible so that our meetings can respond to the more popular requests. To this end please will YOU consider joining the EBKA Committee (or simply come along to one of its meetings) to describe your suggestions - whether you are a new beekeeper or very experienced. Joining the Committee is not intended to be onerous and you are welcome to simply come along and make your suggestions. Please give it some serious thought because new suggestions and ideas are vital to the continued growth of any organisation. Contact our Secretary, Louise Rickard, for the date of the next meeting. Many thanks! __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Don't forget, Members are entitled to also attend Evening Meetings at other Devon Associations - see link to their programmes on the right of the 'Meetings' page. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
